One of the great things about an organization like NEMA, which represents so many different aspects of the electrical grid, is the opportunities that arise to help promote some very important technologies.

Today the Surge Arresters Section launched its new website, dedicated to promoting the latest, most effective technology in arresters. Metal oxide varistor (MOC) technology long ago proved itself superior to the older silicon carbide (SiC) arrester technology, because it more effectively protects the grid from lightning and switching surges. The new "NEMA Arresters" website tells the story behind the need to replace the riskier product with the safer product.
